While many people think only little girls love unicorns, that idea has been fueled by “girl” toys like My Little Pony. In the past, boys liked unicorns, too. After all, in the old tales, unicorns belonged to the king, and they were fierce, dangerous animals to capture, just like tigers or lions. I have hunted for unicorn-themed items that could be used for a boy or girl, and also found some that teenagers and adults will appreciate. It is so easy to take a plain room with a plain bedspread and bring it to life by adding a few of these items. Match styles and colours to create the perfect room. A plain bedspread and plain walls in fairly neutral or light colours help focus the eye on the theme.
